Trump: US may hit Turkey with strong sanctions

United States President Donald Trump told reporters outside the White House on Thursday that his administration will "possibly do something very strong" when it comes to potential sanctions against Turkey in response to Ankara's military operation against Kurds in Northern Syria.

Earlier, Trump threatened to target Turkey with sanctions if it doesn't "play by the rules" in Syria and called its operation in the Middle Eastern country a "bad idea." Meanwhile, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu insisted that "nothing will come out" Washington's threats, claiming Trump "truly knows how important Turkey is."
